CANTON, N.Y. (WWTI) – The Civil War made a significant impact on the shaping of the present day. One of those impacts was through medical and surgical advances.
The “Moses Ambulance Wagon and Tent” was an ambulance wagon designed to transport sick and wounded soldiers, while also offering a location for operations and examinations to take place.
It will be one of the 50 images of medical and surgical advancements discussed during Civil War Medical Care (1861-1865) at the next North Country Civil War Round Table held on Sunday, March 22 at 2pm at the Colton Town Hall.
Dennis Eickhoff, the Town of Colton Historian, will be presenting. The event is free and open to the public.
The story has been updated to show a change in location to the Colton Town Hall, 94 Main St., Colton, NY 13625.
